Kolo Muani shortlisted for the first time

FC Nantes striker Randal Kolo Muani is on the list of players pre-selected by Didier Deschamps. Just like Canaris goalkeeper Alban Lafont.

Randal Kolo Muani is experiencing an end to the season in apotheosis. Winner of the Coupe de France with FC Nantes, almost a year after saving the Canaries from relegation by scoring the winning goal in the Toulouse play-off, “RKM” is on an expanded list of pre-selected players with the France team, like its goalkeeper this season, Alban Lafont.

13 goals this season

If the latter is used to it, it is however a first for the one who spent his childhood in Villepinte, 20km from the Stade de France, the setting of the Blues. The presence of Kolo Muani does not say anything about Didier Deschamps’ intentions about him, but it does show that the performance of the most restless striker in the final at Saint-Denis caught the coach’s eye.

Author of 12 goals in Ligue 1 this season, 13 in all competitions, Randal Kolo Muani knew his destiny linked to that of Frankfurt, where he signed free, for a long time. The international hopefuls, at FC Nantes since he was 17, very quickly appeared determined to end the season with a bang, just to leave in peace.

And the striker, amazing with his flashes and his ball-to-foot agility, kept his promise, remaining concerned and decisive until the end despite everything, to close the Nantes chapter on the best possible note. Frankfurt being a Europa League finalist, Randal Kolo Muani could play in the Champions League next season.
